The Katsina State Police Command has arrested one Ms Muhibat Taiwo Abdulsalam, a staff of the Federal Competitive Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC), Katsina branch, over alleged murder of her boss, Mr. Julius Haruna, 57, in his office, over suspected inflated job, reports 
Late Mr. Julius Haruna, former Director FCCPC Katsina
The Police also confirmed that Ms Muhibat is notorious for fighting previous four directors before the deceased, who is the Northwest Zonal Coordinator of the commission in his office and accused him of sexual harassment, last Wednesday.
This is coming as FCCPC has set up an investigative panel on the matter.

Spokesman of the command, SP Gambo Isah, who confirmed the incident said the suspect had reportedly done a certain report for which she demanded N80,000, but the deceased, Mr. Haruna, directed the cashier to give her N4,000, arguing that what she did was not up to the amount she demanded.

Preliminary investigations by the Police, Isah said, showed that an argument ensued between the suspect and the deceased in his office in the presence of the cashier who later left the two in fierce argument.

He also said that the lady allegedly manhandled the deceased, tore his clothes and took his nude picture.

She reportedly rushed to the GRA police station, where she reported him for alleged sexual harassment.

“Our investigations also revealed that the suspect, Ms Muhibat, had fought four previous directors who were there before the deceased,” Isah said, even as investigation continues.

After her report at the police station, some police officers were said to have followed her to the directors office only to meet him lifeless on the floor, with bruises on his body.

It was further gathered that Julius Haruna had reported Ms Muhibat severally to the Head Office for acts of insubordination.

The elder brother of the deceased, Aegidius Haruna, in a statement said “they quarreled over money approved for her in the office because she needed extra which he refused to oblige. I think that is how the problem started.”

“We are shocked by his death. Our family members sent me here to seek justice for his death,” Aegidius said.

Meanwhile, FCCPC has set up an internal investigative panel on the matter, as said by the Secretary of the Governing Board of FCCPC Tam Tamunokonbia, in a statement that the police have launched investigation into the incident, reaffirming that Ms Abdusalam is in the custody of the Katsina State Police Command.

He, however, said the FCCPC has set up its own investigative panel to probe circumstances that led to the death of the director.

Tamunokonbia said the board had also directed an immediate, but temporary relief of relevant leadership and operatives within the commission to ensure fair, transparent and credible investigation.

He noted that Ben Nwoye, a legal practitioner and a member of the board had been appointed as the chairman of the Independent Internal Investigation Panel to probe the death of the director.

He said that retired AVM Wakili Ahmed, another member of the FCCPC board, was appointed co-chairman of the panel.

Tamunokonbia said the board directed that representatives from the Federal Ministry of Industry, Trade and Investment and Office of the Head of Service of the Federation, be invited as members of the panel.
